I don't have a problem with spanking my kids, and it is not child abuse.  I want my kids to listen to me and to do what I say.   I like to talk to my kids first, but sometimes they will not listen.  I have tried many things and spanking is working for me.   :cat:

Probably not but i don't think hitting your child is necessary.

No, not even close.
Parent''s don't beat their children enough this day in age. And look how the world has turned out.
Crimes have risen as well as unemployment. People are too used to having everything go their own way and skirting punishment when they do get caught for something.
It's a thing that needs to be changed.

BEAT YOUR CHILDREN MORE PEOPLE!!

I don't think it's child abuse, but I definitely think it's ridiculous and ineffective. Physically hurting a child is not the answer, imo.

Only if leaves a mark.  I was spanked a lot and I turned out just fine.  Though, I did fear my parents a little more than most other kids did.   ???

Spanking is not considered child abuse. Beating is.

I don't view spanking as child abuse. I was spanked as a child and I wasn't harmed in any way by it. I feel that it gave me the right discipline that I may have needed. I am not angry with my parents for spanking me. When my older son does something that he isn't supposed to and if warning him and time outs don't work, he gets a spanking.

5 and up is ok for a good swat on the hand. Anything less than that they don't understand why they're being hurt or really what they did wrong. They just know that now they're afraid of you. My parents didn't spank my little brother or sister, though.

I don't find anything wrong with a swift single swat on the backside.  I believe that it becomes child abuse when you don't stop after one or two swats.

I think that you can reason with kids.  But sometimes, a good swat is what is needed to get their attention. My rule is if the kid is doing something that can hurt them or take their life, they get a swat and taken out of that situation.  My grandkids get spanked for running into the street that sort of thing.  If they are just being a bit difficult, then I just change their mind about what they are doing.

Spanking is not child abuse unless it is excessive and/or causes more than temporary pain to the child. However, that being said most studies show that spanking is not the best form of discipline for your children stating that often the child still doesn't understand what they did wrong or why they are being punished. Discipline can only work if both negative consequences and a clear understanding of what the child did wrong are present. Spanking scares your child into behaving without knowing how they need to behave. This forms rebellious or submissive children. Spanking should be limited or only occasionally for these reasons.

Spanking isn't considered abuse unless you use to much force or leave damaging marks or something like that. Sometimes the only way a child will mind is to spank them. If trying to use timeout or talking or other ways don't help, spanking may. I know that people say it is abuse, I say not. That is why I and some of my friends agree that is wrong the kids today that get by with things and you can't make them act right. They think they can do whatever they want and yell abuse and get their way.

I don't think it's child abuse, but it's not the best child-rearing practice because it teaches the kid that he can hit others if he thinks they "deserve" it. My husband raised two respectful, hard-working sons from his first marriage without spankings. It took lots more planning and effort than just swatting them, but the result was better.
